Superior Spray Foam has now over 12,000,000 square feet of sprayed polyurethane foam roof systems in place!

Many of these roofs have already experienced a 100% payback on energy savings. With costs of energy increasing, so many heating dollars are simply going through the ROOF!

Superior Spray Foam has demonstrated that the polyurethane foam roof systems are and economical way of adding insulation value to our customers' roofs. And at the same time, we create a leak proof monolithic roofing system that is virtually impervious to water.

Conserves Energy - Rigid polyurethane foam offers the lowest thermal conductivity of any commercial roof installation product. There are no fasteners that cause thermal bridging.

Light Weight - The high strength-to-weight ratio of rigid polyurethane foam makes polyurethane foam an ideal product for roofing and reproofing.

Easy to Apply - It speeds up new construction and minimizes exposure during reroofing, often eliminating the need for a complete tear off.

Monolithic - The spray-applied seamless blanket of insulation seals cracks and holes while insulating the roof deck from exterior temperature extremes.

Self-Adhering - No special adhesives or mechanical fasteners are required. Spray-applied polyurethane foam offers excellent wind uplift resistance.

UL Classified - Polyurethane Foam systems for roof insulation have UL-790 (ASTME-108) classification in class A and B roof configurations.

Self Flashing - Spray-applied polyurethane foam is self-flashing around stacks, vents, ducts and other objects.

Extended Building Life - By insulating the roof deck from ambient temperature extremes, damage due to thermal expansion and contraction is eliminated. Polyurethane foam puts the roof deck to sleep. ZZZzzz...

Polyurethane foam can be applied to unusual roofing configurations such as domes and geometric shapes with relative ease compared to other options.

Polyurethane foam can be built up in passes to improve roof drainage and eliminate ponding.

Metal Roofs

Metal has very good conductivity. This allows a high heat or cold to transfer into the roof, thus making your insulation work against higher temperature extremes than other building materials. This is especially true in the summer months when not only is the ambient temperature conducting into the roof, but the sunlight is also beating down on it. It is not uncommon to see galvanized metal read temperatures of 150 degrees F on a sunny 85-degree F day. Wow! Hope you are not trying to air-condition that building!

The rate of expansion and contraction on metal is higher than other materials. The rubber seals used on the fastener can break down from the temperature extremes and eventually the roof will leak.

Why not seal it with spray foam and eliminate the heat transfer though the metal before it enters the building. The metal will not expand and contract anymore and the outside elements such as rain and hail will not be heard beating down on your roof. Customers can observe,l the very next day, that something has dramatically changed on their building after foam has been applied.

Foam applicators have seen the roof top A/C units shutting down AS the foam is being applied, when the previous day they had run continuous. All this, and after five years or less it will pay for itself in heat and A/C savings.

Built up Roof (BUR) Roof Systems

Tired of leaks year after year on your tar and gravel roof, even when a contractor has come in to repair it, only for another leak to show up somewhere else?

Once a BUR system has water in it, not only is some of the roof insulation being depleted but the moisture also has to get out somehow. Because there is a vapor barrier on the underside of the roof deck, the moisture has nowhere to go but up.

This is why tar and gravel roofs will show blisters in the tar. Most conventional roofers will want to tear the roof off at this point and install a new roof system. This is labor intensive, disruptive, costly, and a waste of material that was still for the most part doing its job. Why not retain the insulation you have and add more?

This is where Superior Spray Foam can help. First all of the ballast is removed from the roof. This will reduce the load on the building. Next the original tar membrane is punctured and roof vents are installed to allow the moisture in the deck to gas off. The roof then gets 3lb density roofing foam sprayed over it, foaming the vents in place. This foam has a 50 PSI compressive strength so not only can it be walked on, but it also adds strength to the roof deck. Finally a plastic membrane is sprayed over the foam to protect it from the elements.

The final result is a completely sealed, better-insulated roof deck.
